Dearborn, a city with over 97,000 residents, combines a rich heritage, a strong feeling of community, and a healthy commercial and industrial base. The earliest settlers had "ribbon farms" with the narrow end fronting on the Rouge River. The Dearborn area began to emerge as a community when it was chosen as the site for the Detroit Arsenal in the early 1830's. In 1838, the area around the Detroit Arsenal was incorporated and named Dearbornville at the request of the arsenal's first commandant who wanted to honor Major General Henry Dearborn, a Revolutionary War hero under whom he had served. The only arsenal structure left is the commandant's quarters which today houses the Dearborn Historical Museum.
Dearborn may be best known as the hometown of Henry Ford. Henry Ford first boosted Dearborn's growth by constructing the Ford Rouge Plant here in 1917. As Ford Motor Company grew, Dearborn became the location of its World Headquarters.
Some of the biggest tourist attractions in southeastern Michigan are located in Dearborn. Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village which attract visitors from all over the globe have the world's largest collection of Americana. Dearborn's newest attraction - The Automotive Hall of Fame, offers automotive history and education to visitors of all ages. Henry Ford's Fair Lane Estate located on the University of Michigan - Dearborn Campus offers tours and cultural events.
Dearborn is an established city with an excellent infrastructure and city services. Most homes were built before 1960, and there is a higher percentage of home ownership than average for the Metro Detroit area.

Although household density is almost twice the Metro Detroit average, the city maintains a large number of parks, playgrounds and recreational facilities and services.
Dearborn is centrally located, a short drive from downtown Detroit, Southfield, Ann Arbor, the Downriver communities and the airport. Residents also have easy access to public transportation and major highways.
Dearborn is representative of the Detroit Metro average in many statistics including the education level of residents, median income, median housing value, and the size and types of homes, yet it has its own distinct personality and features that make it a desirable place to live and work.
